An Evening with Jesus
What questions did the Master ask his disciples and others? More importantly, how would you answer those same questions today? During this evening we imagine what it would be like to be in conversation with Jesus.
An Evening with Mary
Imagine walking side by side with Mary as she walks home from Calvary. In what way does she now understand her role in your life? In the midst of suffering she emanates a sense of eternal joy.
An Evening with the Saints
We make decisions and remake them. What decisions did the Saints make and what are the common threads that unite them all? Perhaps even more illuminating is our reflection on everyday saints.
Making Saints – How the Catholic Church Decides

Feedback from Participants
"As a convert, I tell people the whole of the 6th chapter of St. John is why I became a Catholic. I read it often. To have so much emphasis on the Eucharist and adoration restores my faith that the Universal Church is alive and well."
"Faith is what sustains me as I go through life and face people and events that do not necessarily go as I have planned. It allows me to turn to God to help me through because I trust that God has a plan even when I don’t know what it is."
"I think this prayer is a lovely way to start our day – to live our life as Jesus wants us to. To feel we have God indwelling in us gives life such a purpose."
"Listening to Cora Evans' journey from Mormonism to Catholicism, I felt it was really moving that with just a different interpretation of something can change someone’s whole mind. I found it was amazing that she could bi-locate and that she had the stigmata. Also, hearing the story of Cora Evans, who seemed to begin her life as someone so “ordinary,” but ended up allowing God to make her extraordinary."
